the voters who are already obama voters, so people like latino voters who lean obama but might not vote anyway, they're trying to get them energized to go out and vote. union voters. then women who are already leaning to obama. the second point is to get early voters out to the polls because that's where the obama team feels like their machine, their ground game, actually makes a difference. they think they have the numbers. the question is can you get them there on election day, if not, get them out early. that made a big difference in 2008. they're trying to do it again this year. then you mentioned women voters. this is where they think the margin of difference can come in. there are a lot of undecided women voters, they think a margin of them and they trying to turn them at the very end, one way they are going to do it, bill clinton is hitting the trail with the president next week on monday. the first time the two men will stump together, going to three battleground states. we'll see that effort in action next week, anderson. >> jim, gloria, jessica, thanks. let us know what you th
tied. which way colorado goes may well we determined by latino voters and we asked barry petersen to atll us more about that. >> i've already voted. y> oh, you've already voted. so there you go. latieporter: the battle for the latino vote in colorado is being waged one house at a time. >> hello there! >> reporter: jesus altamirano works evening getting out the vote for a nonpartisan latino group. when you knock on the door, jesus, who are they leaning owards? o a lot of individuals have been leaning towards obama. >> reporter: latinos are now at least 13% of the colorado electorate and favor president obama 2-1. onwidewide, latinos make up about 9% of voters and are for andobama by more than 3-1. when a national politician talks about the latino vote, the prime topic is immigration. accurate or not accurate in nots of the sentiment? >> definitely not accurate. they are -- we are definitely aroking more for jobs and health care, economy, public education. those are the issues that really ele driving individuals to the polls. hi well, i support romney because of the economy. >> repo
cycles ago and you may remember george w. bush made a point of courting the latino vote. he was the texas governor and he even spoke spanish on the campaign trail. but governor mitt romney's position and the republican moves some of them on immigration and border control and health care, could be causing some problems and eroding some of that goodwill and the inroads that president obama -- president bush made in the latino community. that is the fastest growing part of the electorate and it is critical for president obama's campaign because he may, in fact, be banking, banking on latinos to win his re-election. the reason i can say that is because he actually made this extraordinarily telling comment to the "des moines register" in what at one point was an off the record interview, but that he and his campaign released. here's the quote -- but that raises some fascinating questions about mr. president obama's election strategy. our cnn contributor and daily beast senior columnist john avalon written a piece about this. i encourage you for wait for this interview to be over and then to yo
strongly for obama boem. recent numbers show latinos still favor the president, but they want to hear more about the issues that are most important to them. they don't want their vote taken for granted. miguel marquez has more. >> reporter: out of the shadows wanting their voices heard, their concerns on the agenda. >> tell me why you're here tonight. >> we're here asking both of the candidates to look at immigration in a more humane sense because none of them are doing so. >> latino students hope to hear something that spoke to them. they never got it. >> they have too many issues that i'm passionate about. i'm still waiting to hear. >> what are you passionate about? >> i would definitely say immigration, education. >> with the president who won 61% of colorado's latino votes in 2008, that same energy for many latinos just isn't there. >> four years ago barack obama, i had his back. he very much spoke to me, but now i'm hearing the same rhetoric that i heard four years ago. >> still, there are 400,000 latino votes in play across the state. both sides courting them heavily. >> mr. presiden
is not going to win the latino vote but the question now is how much is he going to lose it by. the president is now up 52 points amongst latino voters compared to six weeks ago, the support has dropped from 26 to 21%. back in august, romney said he was aiming for 38% of the hispanic vote. that was seven points more than what john mccain had in 2008. latinos are the largest minority group in the united states. 23.7 million are eligible to vote in this election. that is a record but turnout is traditionally lower for this minority than white or black voters overall. some churches are working to turn out the latino and african american vote bypassing out voter registration cards in battle ground states and asking people to promise to participate in caravans to get souls to the polls on election day. and since latinos are not likely to vote for mitt romney it is not stopping him from trying to win them over. he is going to honor the temporary work permits that allow young people to stay in the country. we're back in just a minute. what not to wear. >>and now to my point. tha
his very harsh position on immigration, a position that is quite anti-the interest of latinos in florida. >> in fact, the numbers are overwhelming for the president still. >> no one has been hurt in america by this president's economic policies more than hispanics. 15% unemployment. almost 50% of college graduates of hispanic origin can't get a job. jobs and the economy are the number one issue for hispanics, and frankly, they don't want four more years of this. >> would you concede that in the hispanic community, latino community, that there is a feeling that republicans are very harsh in their -- and that hurts the republican party? do you concede that? >> i think politics, frankly, between you and i, i think democrats have done a lot better job, and republicans have. this will be the last election that a republican will win the presidency unless generically speaking, the partyoes a better job -- >> but -- >> but mitt romney is doing a great job. mitt romney has gotten over 40% of hispanic vote in florida. that's plenty to win the state. he will hold on to that, and there wi
the enthusiasm gap. a firm that does the polling for nbc news, within one sub group, latinos -- of au are the conspiratoria left-wing appalling -- >> barack obama had 50% with latinos, the poll is their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. >> glen, my thinking had been while it was inadequate -- mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that was a cushion shot in pool. is ohio but we should be looking at more than anything else? >> that is a good question, because it is much easier for mitt romney to win the presidency if he wins ohio. is a reason -- i entered this election cycle believing that their word out three key states instead of dust florida and ohio. i would add virginia to that list, and then if they are at the top, the next half-level down is where carolina. look, clearly governor romney is stronger in florida and virginia. those are very competitive states right now. ohio is a place where he doesn't need a significant comeback, and i think fred's points are well taken, which is for a lot of voters the election start
is a felony popped up in predominantly african-american and latino neighborhoods. prison sentence for voter fraud. likely targeting former felons that have a right to vote. clear channel, we are sitting in a clear channel studio. they announced that they would take down the billboards after the sponsor refuse today come forward. the company is donating 10 billboards declare voting is a right, not a crime. >> that's good. nice. >> stephanie: the judge ruled, pennsylvania we had a call yesterday, chris the judge ruled pennsylvania voters without photo i.d. could still cast a regular ballot. state sponsored ads have continued to tell residents they must show i.d. they are ads are on radio and it. v. and mailed to seniors via a precipitation trouble program. billboard targeting spanish speakers continues to misleadingly promote the i.d. requirement. and we have talked about this a lot. several -- excuse me, present ceos are pressuring their employees to vote for romney saying they may lose their job in obama is ele
sanchez was part of history four years ago, urging latinos to help make barack obama president. it's different this time around. harder. >> some people are still very excited and others say, i don't know. well, i haven't made up my mind. >> reporter: less hype about the obama campaign this time, she says, and less hope about the candidate. >> it's a little bit harder because sometimes some of them say, well, i don't know who to vote for, these two evils. >> reporter: latinos were 13% of the vote in battleground colorado four years ago. and any dip in their support for the president or a drop in turnout could shift this classic swing state. >> this is one of his songs that's so moving and so powerful. >> reporter: evangelicals are to mitt romney what latinos are to barack obama. white evangelicals made up 23% of colorado's vote in 2008. >> think about life, think about liberty, think about character. and then cast your ballot. >> reporter: this pastor adds a plug to vote to every subd's sermon. >> the most surprising thing is the frustration of many of them with both candidates and
in colorado where last night's debate was held is latinos. they're more optimistic about the economy than nonlatino white voters. still, six in ten latinos say the economy is in poor shape. a separate poll found a majority of latinos think the economy is a more important issue than immigration. so no doubt the latino vote will be key. coming up this weekend, soledad o'brien follows two people in nevada who are trying to tip the scales in their party's favor. watch "latino in america: courting their vote." that is sunday at 8:00 p.m. >> interesting. >>> 43 minutes after the hour. confusion about early voting in the tampa area. the election supervisor says a call from organizing for america, a democratic community organizing group, prompted hundreds of phone calls about early voting. the call was actually about filling out absentee ballots at election offices. early voting, which is different, doesn't start until the 27th in florida. >>> issue number one in america, jobs. who has them and who can create them? cnn fact checking both candidates' claims about the job market. that's coming up f

among voting groups already leaning to the president, youth, latinos, union workers. three, woo undecided women including with this new ad. >> and it would be my preference that they reverse row v. wade. >> hopefully reverse row v. wade. >> reporter: and as for that endorsement from general powell, the president said he was grateful and appreciative of it. he had no advance notice it was coming. but after the general announced it, the president did call him and thank him for it. and he mentioned it here at a rally to the crowd saying it was a deep honor. and no doubt something of a boost to his campaign. wolf. >> no doubt about that. jessica, thank you. mitt romney is focusing in on one of the most critical states for him no republican has ever won the white house without carrying ohio. and that's where the gop nominee is campaigning nonstop on this day. our national political correspondent jim acosta's with the romney campaign in worthington, ohio, right now. what's the very latest, jim? >> reporter: wolf, mitt romney just wrapped up a campaign event here in the columbus area.
-american vote for barack obama, 0% for romney. but the latino vote is crucial on the strategy you mentioned of nevada. look how many times the president's gone to nevada. he even prepped for the denver debate in nevada. little picked up on the press, but he went to cesar chavez's burial site up in the mountains of california. and with ken salazar, a great latino representative of colorado, his interior secretary, they saved all of la paz, cesar chavez, the great labor organizer's home in person tuity by the federal government, now a federal government. that played well in hispanic newspapers around the country because chavez is the martin luther king in many ways for latinos. so you see the president's 70% or more with latinos, and it could make a difference just in nevada alone being able to pick that up. >> you spent time with our president. and obviously, it's a great piece. what did you see in his eyes? what are we not feeling? did you see a guy empowered? nervous? just as guy to guy, you sitting there, walk away. >> he's unflappable. and he's ready to roll. i asked him about denver, wh
collection that's not mine, can affect you. >> reporter: the latino economic center is helps her solve the problem. he specializes in negotiating with credit companies to correct reports. >> it's a thin line between doors that open and doors that close. >> reporter: now the consumer financial protect bureau is supervising large companies like experian, equifax and transunion to make sure the complaints get solved. >> bad credit can block them from borrowing money at all. >> reporter: both transunion and experian say their reports are highly accurate. in a statement, transunion writes, our goals are to continually improve our processes. experian, we look forward to working with cfpb. >> it's nice. it's like given a second chance. >> reporter: it could make all the difference in her business dreams. the cfpb was created as a result of the consumer protection act of 2010. if you do have a problem with your credit, you still need to try to resolve that with the credit reporting company directly before going to the cfpb for help. danielle lee, nbc news. >>> disappointing study for women in
latinos in particular, those two parts of his base. african-american enthusiasm subpoeis up and fine and there. latinos and young voters, this is sort of the president's challenge. it's not about swing voters for him i would argue. at this point it's about trying to fire up two voting groups more than anything else, because they doubled it. he's winning latinos by a bigger margin, but because they're not as enthusiastic if they don't look like likely voters, he might not net any new votes in some places. if seniors are ticking up in enthusiasm, which is what we show, that's the difference in nevada, right? that's how a nevada goes 51-49 obama to 51-49 romney. >> mika. >> we saw also in the polls the enthusiasm gap, which i think is really troubling for the president but also tightening with women. what do you think is going on there? >> what i find very interesting is how one of the problems obama now has is his own side is so hysterical. it's like the republicans are very good at staying on message when they have a bad hole to get into it. if something goes wrong for them, the whole
vetoed it. now, listen, democrats can't get so comfortable and cozy that we've got the latino locked up, we've got the women locked up we can then throw latina women over whelmingly the domestic workers under the bus. jerry brown should not have vetoed that bill. it's democrats taking advantage of the fact that right now latinos and women don't feel they can go to the republican party. the sickness in the republican party on these issues is -- jerry brown should be ashamed of himself. >> don't you think that's a broader pattern in the democratic party? >> it could be. >> you have social issues a lot of places are trumping economic issues. even in new york andrew cuomo maybe signed the bill you're describing, but when cuomo wants to shore up his base, he does gaye marriage and when he wants to come to the marriage, this is something economic liberals should be concerned about that social liberalism is sort of the only liberalism that really matters. >> and i'm delighted that van brought jerry brown up. one, i think van is right. the democratic party does take advantage of its constituenc
latinos in 2008. look, this is a problem in this election for republicans, andrea, but a bigger problem in 2016, 2020 and beyond. the hispanic community is obviously a young community, it's a growing community, it's a community that's going to register to vote more in line with their population numbers in years to come. republicans simply cannot lose the hispanic vote by 40, 50 points. they can't even lose it by 20 points. people like jeb bush, marco rubio who you showed earlier they understand that. i think the party needs to have a reckoning with where they are in immigration and courting hispanics. numbers like that, mitt romney maybe can win with a number like that, possibly nationally, but i will tell you in 2016, 2020 and beyond the party nominee will be hard pressed to win losing hispanic business that kind of margin. >> and finally, how big a deal is joe biden saying that the middle class has been buried for the last four years? >> yeah. >> republicans are going to make a big deal out of it. >> and are making a big deal out of it. web video this morning, you played paul ryan's c
and the-- see, the president has a number of discreet constituents-- latinos, working women, college-educated women-- to whom he has spoken. the thing. a national debate, you're speaking to everybody at the same time. there's no demographic cliques or subgroups. it's everybody. that's consider i think debates are so important. >> woodruff: we're popping the popcorn. we're on the edge of our seats. we'll see both of you in three hours. we will be back at 9:00 p.m. eastern for special coverage of this debate but our effort effoe ongoing online. we will have a live scream where you can watch the debate and live analysis from our team. we're send our "newshour" hat-cam to a debate watch party here in washington. following the debate, "newshour" political editor christina belland tony will be talking to undecide voters at a google-plus hang out >> ifill: still to come on the "newshour": rough flying for american airlines; the pope's butler on trial in rome; chasing the early voters in iowa; a medical breakthrough for critically ill infants and jim lehrer on past debates. but first, with t
. >> to hear people saying that some of us latinos got in here easily and the only reason we got in here is because of our race, that's really disappointing. we work just as hard as anyone else did to get here to ut. >> reporter: conservative groups say it's not just about getting in. the u.s. civil rights commission says studies show that using racial preferences can hurt minorities by starting them out near the bottom of their classes. >> if they're towards the bottom of whatever class they go to, they are much more likely to give up on an ambitiono major in science and engineering. >> almost a decade ago, then justice sandra day o'connor wrote a majority opinion that said that the university of michigan law school had a compelling interest in promoting class diversity and suggested affirmative action might still be needed for another 25 years. o'connor has since left the court, leading to speculation that the court's conservatives could now strike a blow to preferences. joe johns, cnn, washington. >> thank you, joe johns. so jeff toobin, this is the question. does this texas case rais
but on demographics. they need to get young people out, black voters out and latinos voters and hispanic voters out. they lost the white vote by big margins in florida and the male vote. so they need women to come to their side. that's where you see them focus. florida is a strange state. the north is the deep south and the south of florida is the northeast and the midwest. where it all mixes together is in the i-4 corridor from tampa to orlando and daytona beach and that's where the battle is fought and won in the state. >> we know the distinction between the cuban-american influence and their support in large part to the republican party in that state, if that distinction is needed at this point. i do have to ask you about fairly the romney ground game in the state as well. >> well, you know, they say, look, we've made a lot of voter contacts. those are largely robocalls and mailers, but they're doing a good job of it. i'm a no party affiliation vo voter. i got calms from the romney campaign and mailers and i don't get anything from the obama campaign. the romney campaign is reaching out to a bro
they have the policy debate, absolutely. he knows latino vote, younger votes could be the difference for president obama. he's trying to chip into that advantage. but the part that makes you scratch your head is why didn't you say that in the first place. >> the timing, the timing. john king, let's talk money. big, big money, karl rove's american crossroads conservative super pac buying $11 million worth of tv ads across eight different swing states. straightforward, you know, the ad talks about unemployment, a lot of numbers here, rising government spending, what is the strategy? why the huge buy-in and why now? >> reporter: why now, because we're into crunch time. there are five weeks left, brooke, and the romney campaign is behind a few points in some of the battleground states, behind a handful in ohio, florida, maybe more in virginia, six or eight in wisconsin. republicans dispute some numbers but no question a dead heat in colorado. a number of super pacs are going in with heavier spending, trying to influence voters and do that after the debate. if romney turns in a strong deb
